Equipment Finance Cares Announces Panel, Speaker & Foundations for February Event

Equipment Finance Care will hold its next event on Feb. 20 from 1:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. PT at Blue Street Capital’s headquarters in Huntington Beach, CA.

“Equipment Finance Cares is excited to come back to Southern California,” Jesse Johnson, founder of Equipment Finance Cares, said. “We are grateful to Blue Street for welcoming us back and to our sponsors for making these events possible.”

For this event, an industry-focused best practices panel will be moderated by Jim Merrilees, CLFP, of the Alta Group, with panelists including Lisa Whitehead, CLFP, of First Foundation; Don Hansen of Regents Capital; David Rhoads of Blue Street Capital; and Brent Hall, CLFP, of Alliance Funding Group.

The event’s featured speaker will be RJ Grimshaw, CEO of ABLE Leadership. Grimshaw will guide participants through the journey of becoming a genuine innovator and intrapreneur. The session will weave together captivating tales and anecdotes, illustrating the essential “dos and don’ts” of the innovation process.

At the event, Equipment Finance Cares, as a platform that showcases how equipment finance professionals and organizations are giving back to their respective communities, will showcase the Love Life Now Foundation, the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation, the Chris Walker Educational Fund, the Tam Ky Project, Operation Open Water and the Mickey Riley Foundation. The day will conclude with a networking event at Blue Street Capital’s office.

“I’m excited to collaborate with the Southern California team, including Jenna Hubbard; Maggie Holly, CLFP; and Martina Rider-Porter, for the upcoming event,” Jaimie Haver, CLFP, of Happy Manufacturing, who is chairing the event, said. “The charities we will be recognizing have deep and valuable meaning to some of our peers, and we are lucky to be able to support them by increasing awareness and raising money for a cause they care about! The working session with RJ will have incredible takeaways for all participants, and the panel will be nothing short of extraordinary. What I love and appreciate about each of these individuals is that they live the values they talk about, from changing the way their teams work, how their teams work with one another and the respect they have and demonstrate to the people they work with and who work for them. I am super grateful that EF Cares is doing an event like this in our community and own backyard.”
